Update #12

Playstation 4/Vita Ports Approved!

PS4/Vita Ports Approved

Good news, everyone! We just got Sony's approval to bring the game to their platforms! With a bit more funding, Liege will be coming to Playstation 4 and Vita!!!

The games I played on Playstation consoles, including classics like FF Tactics, FFVII, Suikoden, and many more, had a huge influence on the vision for Liege, so the thought of getting onto their platform is pretty unreal. 

Sony's been incredibly supportive during the on-boarding process, and in particular I wanted to give a quick shout to Shahid Ahmad for making this happen. He's become their main point of contact for indie devs, and he went out of his way to push this through with our limited campaign window in mind. The guy pretty much works 24/7. Seriously, follow him on Twitter. He doesn't sleep. If you're looking to play the game on a Sony device, show him some Twitter love :)

Updated Stretch Goals

So to make the ports to PS4/Vita happen, I've made some changes to our stretch goals:

I've been crunching the numbers and doing lots of research over the last few weeks in anticipation of this update. $52k is a pretty tight squeeze to pull off a console port since there will be significant costs involved with licenses, dev kits, etc. Luckily, the changes we had already planned for our Linux port have a lot of overlap with what's needed to bring the game to PS4/Vita (mainly, a Unity port). With this in mind, I've set the target as low as I can, since I'm really hoping we can make this happen!

Reward Updates & Clarifications

Understandably, Kickstarter doesn't let you modify reward descriptions for tiers that already have backers. That being the case, I'd like to add a few clarifications here. These will also be added to the main project page and in the FAQ:

  • For now, I'm including PS4/Vita support in the existing $10 and $25 tiers. That means if you're an existing backer and we hit our $52k target, you'll have the option to receive the game for either PS4 or Vita. Because there's a cost associated for each game key, at this point, I won't be able to offer both in the same reward. I'll be setting up add-ons if anyone is interested in receiving codes for both.
  • Alpha and beta access will only apply to the original target platforms (PC, Mac, iOS, Android) as well as Linux. This is because at this stage I'm not clear on how sharing test keys will work on Sony's platforms. If it turns out test keys can be easily shared, I'll offer them to backers at no charge.

That's all for now. Things began moving pretty quickly today so we're still getting everything finalized, but if anything needs to change, I'll be sure to update everyone well before the campaign closes. I've also been thinking about doing a Q&A at some point on Google Hangout or something similar to get to know you all a bit better and to answer any questions you might have. Stay tuned for more on this soon! 

And of course, thanks again for all your support!!!

      PS4 + PS Vita seperate trophy sets would be awesome! or cross play where the game saves online and can play on the go where you left off..

      Sorry that this might be a bit off topic, but I'll bet there are many supporters out there who have PS3s who do not plan to buy a PS4. Will a PS4 game play on a PS3? If not, are you able to provide the game for PS3? Thanks!

      Just backed this project thanks to the Destructoid article and wanted to help make the PS4/Vita versions happen. I also posted on twitter & Facebook to help spread the word...I really want this to happen...congrats on the successful project and hope the funding grows.

      Yes! Vita (also PS4) is beautiful news. I will of course get one through KS and then buy the other. But, yes!!! This sort of game on a handheld is exactly how it should be. Awesome news!

      Just backed this project! Excited for the PS4/Vita announcement!

      PLEASE make them have separate trophy packs. :D

      Same here! Especially RPGs :)

      I really prefer playing games like this on Vita, or at least on the couch (I know, I know, you can play PC games on the couch too), so I've got my fingers crossed! :)

      Haha thanks Faisal! Glad to help where I can :)

      I'm absolutely stoked! Your campaign has restored my faith in humankind. :)

      Hyperbole aside, I'm also impressed with your enthusiasm and work rate. Kudos man. I'm going to up my pledge definitely.

      Thanks Federico!

      Mihir, I'm still thinking about higher tiers. I just want to make sure if I opened some up, I can offer something really unique to justify the cost, without impacting the value for my existing backers.

      Creator Mihir-Pirate King of the Obsidian Order on July 16, 2013

      Man, now I really think you should introduce some higher tiers, to help with the increased stretch goals :( Perhaps look at some other successful Kickstarters, especially since all your $1000 tiers are taken.

      We're REALLY looking forward to seeing what Art Version 2.0 holds since the art is already so great :P

      Creator Federico on July 16, 2013

      Upped my pledge. Liege would be a perfect match (especially) for Vita!

      Creator John Rhee on July 16, 2013

      Thanks Nik! We're in the middle weeks so a bit of slowdown was expected. Hopefully they'll pick up again as we near the finish, especially with the great PS news!

      Creator Nik Lipor on July 16, 2013

      hmm I think we will hit the $40,000 mark but not where I really wanted to see this land at $70,000. Either way I am excited about the game, looks great and I look forward to the final product.

      Thanks Alec!

      Chris, I'm not sure on this one either. I'll check with Sony as well (I assume Mike and I are talking to the same folks). Will keep you posted as soon as I hear back.

      Creator Chris Rees on July 15, 2013

      To clarify: I only mentioned Mike because he also had ports to PS4/Vita, but I don't know if he had the same contact as you

      Creator Chris Rees on July 15, 2013

      Mike/Disastercake over at Soul Saga didn't have an answer, but you might. Any word on if the PS4/PSVita versions will be cross-play? As in I can use one code to download for both systems and transfer saves between them (like FFVII on PS3/PSP/PSVita)

    19. Kickstarter_profile.small

      Creator Alec on July 15, 2013

      This is awesome! I just sent a tip in to Joystiq, so hopefully they can do a write-up about this! I know when Soul Saga did the same thing they got a HUGE bump!
